Boateng grabs double in Schalke win

The Ghana international netted a second half double to help Schalke to beat Werder Bremen on Saturday

Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng scored a double for Schalke 04 as they recovered from a goal down to beat Werder Bremen 3-1 on Saturday.

Boateng equalised for Schalke in the 64th minute to bring the game to level pegging after Felix Kroos has stunned the home side with a 22nd minute goal.

The Schalke summer signing then headed home his second to complete his double with six minutes left on the clock at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen.

Peruvian winger and former PSV star Jefferson Frfan netted the third on the stroke of full time to give Schalke a well deserved win.

Boateng, who was voted the Schalke player of the month, has now scored five goals in eight appearances for the Royal Blues.
